Despite the power being out for the first part of our last summer STEAM Team session, students and the administration had a great time learning about robotics, arduino, and soft circuits.
Keep up the great momentum from STEAM Team sessions, where you have been creating, failing, re-creating, and learning new skills while having fun. http://makercamp.com/

Crone Middle School will offer Summer STEAM Team Sessions from July 7-10 and July 14-17 from 9:00 a.m. – 11: a.m. Students will work and play together as they tinker with computers, measure environmental factors, and design and print 3D prototypes. Students may sign up for available daily sessions at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f48a4ae2ca7fa7-summer. This isn’t your parents’ summer school!
Please contact Mrs. Yockey if you have any questions. [email protected]
Ms. Maria Moran will be here to demonstrate glass fusing and teach us about the science of glass. Glass is used for so many things and it has special properties that make it is very special. Ms. Moran will share her knowledge from working in the glass industry.
We will be using the art room today to learn about:
1. Surface tension and cutting/handling glass
2. Discuss coefficient of expansion (COE)
3. Demonstrate Viscosity in our kilns and in finished pieces
4. Have the kids create a cabochon
Hope to see you for our last meeting during the school year.
